The upcoming summer will see Internazionale improving their defensive department. According to multiple reports emanating from Italy, Inter are considering a move for Chelsea centre-back Trevoh Chalobah.
He has five years left on his current contract which expires in 2028.
The centre-back has featured in 19 matches for Chelsea this term in all competitions.
The 23-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. Chalobah has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 53 caps and scoring three goals.
Trevoh Chalobah is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Chelsea this summer and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow.
The Italian giants are looking to sign a centre-back and have identified the 23-year-old as potential transfer target.
Simone Inzaghi is a firm fan of Chelsea centre-back and Inter could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense. He is a long term admirer of Chalobah and believes he can get the most out of the England international.
The 23-year-old is a very comfortable defender and has qualities which would improve the Inter’s backline. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
World Football Rumours
According to the report, “Italian giants Internazionale are considering a summer move for Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah. The defender has gone lower down the pecking order at the club this winter. The signing of Benoit Badshiale and the return to fitness of Wesley Fofana will mean his game time is limited. Per Italian journalist Niccolo Ceccarini, the 23-year-old could be moving to Italy in the summer. Current Roma and former Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is another Inter target. The club are looking to replace Milan Skriniar, who is likely to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.”
The Blues are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the centre-back, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Considering they don’t have a big budget, Inter will have to be smart with the signings in the transfer window. They might have to pay over the odds to sign the centre-back.
Good signing for Inter?
If Internazionale are able to negotiate a deal with Chelsea to sign Chalobah, it could be a fantastic opportunity for them. Chalobah will be an ideal choice for Simone Inzaghi as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.
It will be interesting to see if Inter are willing to pay the asking price for Chalobah.
